Kids Are Quick!

TEACHER:         Maria, go to the map and find
North America
MARIA:              Here it is.
TEACHER:         Correct. Now class, who discovered
CLASS:               Maria.


TEACHER:         John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor?

JOHN:               You told me to do it without using tables. 


TEACHER:         Glenn, how do you spell 'crocodile?'

GLENN:              K-R-O-K-O-D-I-A-L

TEACHER:         No, that's wrong

GLENN:              Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.

                    (I Love this kid)


TEACHER:         Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?

DONALD:           H I J K L M N O.  

TEACHER:         What are you talking about?

DONALD:           Yesterday you said it's H to O.


TEACHER:         Glen, why do you always get so dirty?

Well, I'm a lot closer to the ground than you are.  


TEACHER:         Millie, give me a sentence starting with '
I. '
MILLIE:              I is...

TEACHER:         No, Millie... Always say, 'I am.'

MILLIE:              All right... 'I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.'


TEACHER:         George Washington not only chopped down his father's cherry tree, but also admitted it.
Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn't punish him? 

LOUIS:         Because George still had the axe in his hand.  

TEACHER:         Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?

SIMON:             No sir, I don't have to, my Mom is a good cook.

Clyde, your composition on 'My Dog' is exactly the same as your brother's. Did you copy his? 

CLYDE:         No, sir. It's the same dog.


TEACHER:         Harold, what do you call a person who keeps on talking when people are no longer interested?
HAROLD:         A teacher

            Are they not priceless?  I wish I had kept a diary of all the cute things the students said over the years.  One school I worked at kept a book in the staff room where you could write anything the kids would say during the day.  It was a good way to share with the rest of the staff especially if you were having a difficult day!  Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did! 


  1. These are so cute!

    I just saw your trip advisor profile at the bottom of the page-How cool that you have been to Surfer's Paradise! One day we want to visit Canada...I would love to go in Winter now I have seen how spectacular it is!

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi! Found you on BJ's site. and coincidentally, were SITSAs. These are cute jokes lol... I remember watching Bill Cosby's "Kids say the Darnest Things"

  3. Hi Natasha,

    I will never forget Surfer's Paradise as well as the Great Barrier Reef. You are right, Canada is beautiful. I think Vancouver is one of my favorite cities in Canada because of the Rockies on one side and the Pacific at the bottom. I wish I could move there. But its very $$$.

  4. LOL! These are hilarious and I can probably add a few based on all the back and forth I've had with my twin daughters on here! Kids can say the darndest things!

  5. Hi HT,

    Kids grow up fast. I wish I had kept a log of all the cute things my own kids said when they were growing up.

  6. Very funny :) But even adults (like my students) say funny things in class. One lady described the job of an undertaker as "the project leader of a funeral" ;-)

  7. Salty, I guess even adult students are hilarious...but I would keep and eye on her LOL

    Hi Sandy, you are absolutely right!

  8. Love this! I'm enjoying your blog - thanks for visiting me so I could find you!
